I was doing a little processing today and decided I needed to review ds's birth story. I decided to publish it here, so take a look if you are interested - it is a UC turned hospital birth, but a positive story.<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?p=7945323#post7945323" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...23#post7945323</a>

I'm glad you liked it! Someone told me that Jeannine Parvati Baker said if you ask a woman why she wants to UC and she says anything other than "because I want to have a private birth" then she's not ready. I think in my case it has been true - trying to run from fears of being victimized by people is not the way to UC. I think this birth showed me that I can protect myself - yes, hospitals do alot that's counterproductive, but I do not have to be a victim. I had been feeling like a victim for 10 years. Writing is always therapeutic for me.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
